Serial Converters

Simplicity, Security and High Availability using advanced new Fiber-Optic Technology

Due to the increasing use of different kinds of automation techniques in all areas of industry, larger and larger amount of data must be processed. More and more, serial data lines from PHOENIX CONTACT serve to control complex processes and detect process data, thus making them the “arteries” of these processes. A great variety of serial interfaces are used and they are often neither compatible with each other, nor do they meet the increasing requirements regarding resistance to interference, range or rate of transmission. With PSIMOS from Phoenix Contact we welcome you to enter into a new dimension of fiber optic networking. It surely can’t be beaten for simplicity and it can be used with all your serial communication systems.

Product Range

The wide range of Fiber Optics converters from PHOENIX CONTACT has been designed for maximum security of transmission and system availability in industrial applications. High – performance FO interfaces open up new dimensions while still using the simplest of connection technology with polymer, HCS and glass fiber.

The wide range consists of:

● Converters for PROFIBUS.
● Converters for RS-485 2 – wire bus system.
● Converters for RS-422(V.11), RS-485 4- Wire.
● Converter for INTERBUS.
● Converters for Device Net, CAN and CAN open.
● Fiber Optic cables.
● Connectors and Couplings.
● Tool Kit for Cable Assembly.

Advantages at a glance

● Continuous FO Path Monitoring and Diagnostic: The optical lines are continuously monitored. There is no longer any need to interrupt the data transmission to test the continuity of signal.
● All network topologies including Line, Star, Ring etc are possible.
● Maximum resistance to interference, even when exposed to extreme electromagnetic influences.
● High-grade electrical isolation between the stations.
● Maximum transmission distances of several kilometers with extremely high data rate.
● Maximum number of stations is not limited by the electrical properties of the communication interface used.
● Top availability due to redundant design.
● Hot Swapping and automatic system cross wiring for data and power.
